We're not trying to reinvent the social investing wheel, we're just trying to level the playing field for average individual investors.
New York, NY (PRWEB) December 04, 2012
After buying or selling a stock, average individual investors frequently wonder if they’ve made the right decision. A newly launched social media site now offers them a way to boost their confidence.
MarketConsensus.com provides investors with a free and simple-to-use platform, allowing them to quickly access others’ opinions about their buy and sell decisions.
For example, with a few simple mouse clicks, an investor can ask, "Is Google a sell at my $745 target price?” Other investors can weigh in and give their opinion on whether they think the selling price is on target or misses the mark. Additionally, a comments section lets investors give their rationale for voting for or against the individual investor’s decision to invest in or trade the stock.
MarketConsensus.com is especially helpful to individual investors who don’t have time to constantly monitor the stock market or may have doubts after investing in or trading a stock. Unlike other social investing sites that limit investors to just following other traders or contributing to stock conversations, MarketConsensus.com empowers them to initiate a discussion around their own interests and specific investing decisions.
“We're not trying to reinvent the social investing wheel," said Ogbe Airiodion, founder of MarketConsensus.com. "We're just trying to level the playing field for average individual investors. It's about your ability to drive conversations about your own investing choices."
Until now, social investing sites catered predominately to high-frequency investors, but MarketConsensus.com is geared toward the broader investing class, or the 99 percent. “Our potential audience includes millions of individuals who are interested in the financial markets but lack access to the sophisticated algorithms and computational tools available to high-frequency investors,” Airiodion added.
MarketConsensus is not an investment advisory platform. Rather, it functions as a sounding board for individuals to connect with other investors regarding their decisions to buy or sell stocks at a particular price, with the additional option to network and share ideas with others.
